Ground Hog Day?

01 February 2020 | Thompson Bay, Long Island, Bahamas

Here on Ti Amo, it is like the movie Ground Hog Day. We are actually NOT leaving Long Island.

Our friends had arrived late yesterday afternoon and went quiet. We thought maybe they just wanted to rest after the hustle and bustle of the George Town events or even their sail over to Long Island. Actually they had a little incident that we would find out about early today. One of those things we have all done at some point. Seems the painter of their dinghy got wrapped in their prop. Mark (the captain) had dove on it and assessed the damage. Greg went over to lend a hand while Jaxon and I rode with Megan and the two children to a beach to enjoy some time off the boat.

These two children are adorable. They are about the ages of two of my grandchildren and just remind me of how much you miss when you are not around them all the time. After the walk with Jaxon on the beach, we came back to Ti Amo for some lunch. Ham and cheese sandwiches for the little ones and Megan and I enjoyed a spinach salad with salmon. It was nice to enjoy the time with them. Mark is the nephew to Allan Gray, our dear friend on Dagny which you will remember we traveled with our second year to the Bahamas.

While finishing up the lunch dishes, Grace called to ask if we had room in our freezer to hold some food for them as they were having some refrigeration issues. We had room and that of course launched Greg to see if he could help Dave and Helen troubleshoot their issue. Well it did not stop there. Dave was going to pick up fuel in Thompson Bay and his engine would not start. There was water in his fuel. The rest of the day would be cleaning out the fuel filter cleaning the fuel system. He wants to go back to George Town where there is someone that can look at their refrigeration. Greg secured some empty jerry cans for Grace so they could get some clean fuel without having to move the boat.

Everyone here has had a full day but the local bar is offering $3 beers and live music at happy hour. It is by far the hottest day we have had in the Bahamas. The bar is inland and not on the water so Greg, Jaxon and I enjoy the quiet anchorage while just about everyone else goes in for the cheap beer.

Dinner and then on to prepare for tomorrows passage? Let's hope so.
